    mime type detection

    I need to detect a file's mimetype for a Gnome VFS module (a multiuser file transfer protocoll...).
    I know gnome-vfs offers mimetype detection functions but I'd like to keep my project's core server/client-code free of any desktop specific bindings.
    Is there any other standard way to detect mime-types?

    It seems this is just a spec which is implemented by gnome-vfs and it's KDE equivalent, but doesn't provide a library on it's own. Anyway, I've decided to use the gnome-vfs code in a wrapper file which can be compiled for either gnome or kde.
    Thanks for your reply
